[PATCH 0/4] Genericise the IOVA allocator

Hi all,

Here's an update of my previous RFC[1] in preparation for hooking the
IOVA allocator up to the arm64 DMA mapping API, rebased onto 3.19-rc3.

I tried rebasing patches 3 and 4 onto Sakari's RFC series[2] (the merge
conflict is pretty trivial), however I found that series applied to rc3
causes a build error in intel-iommu.c. Thus for now I've left in my
simpler patches 1 and 2 for breaking out the library. Hopefully we can
reach some consensus on that.

Tested on arm64 (DMA mapping series coming soon), and compile-tested
for x86_64_defconfig.

Changes since RFC:
Patch 1: Use a proper Kconfig symbol rather than a hack
Patch 4: sanity check for powers of two also, and clarify the comment


Robin Murphy (4):
  iommu: allow building iova.c independently
  iommu: consolidate IOVA allocator code
  iommu: make IOVA domain low limit flexible
  iommu: make IOVA domain page size explicit
